“Mental Health Matters,” the “Pathaan” star captioned her post.

During the interview, Johnson recalled his first brush with depression at the University of Miami in Florida.

“The interesting thing at that time is, I just didn’t know what it was… I didn’t know what mental health was, I didn’t know what depression was. I just knew I didn’t wanna be there,” the former professional wrestler had said in the conversation.

Johnson said he has “worked hard over the years to gain the emotional tools” for managing his mental health.
